7 ways to keep your business secure in 2018

Here our Security & Alarm expert Richard Anthony gives some advice on Business Security: Keeping your premises safe is one of the biggest concerns of all business owners. Burglary is one of the most common crimes to affect a business and the impact can be far reaching. Here’s how you can update your Business Security to keep things safe and sound this year.

  1. Check your locks This might seem like an obvious point, but you’d be surprised how many people neglect even the most basic of security measures. Locks are one of the simplest safety measures, they should never be overlooked. Make sure that all locks on your premises work effectively.
  2. Monitor your lighting Clever use of lighting is another great way to deter potential burglars. Consider investing in security lights to accompany your new alarm system or set your lights on random timers to give the impression that staff are working late.
  3. Carry out regular checks Even the best equipment in the world is no use if it doesn’t work properly. Technology is not infallible, so it’s important that you check your security systems regularly to make sure everything is in working order. Invest in alarms
  4. Alarms can act as a strong deterrent to potential thieves as they don’t want to be caught out activating an alarm system. For this reason, investing in an up-to-date alarm system is one of the key steps to improving your security.
  5. Update your CCTV – CCTV has come a long way from where it first began. No longer are pictures grainy and unclear, cameras will give you a crystal-clear view of your business premises, ensuring that any intruders are easily identifiable. If you haven’t done so in a while, updating your CCTV systems are one of the key things to do to ensure your business’s safety.

Systems range from single camera set-ups to full multi-camera surveillance, and you can find out more about the types of cameras we install in the Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire area here.

Implement access control – Access control systems give you full control over who can and can’t enter your building. While keys can be copied, and locks can break, access control is a much more modern method to make sure your business property is fully secure.
